Settings menu

All settings, except Show splash screen, Check regularly for updates and Settings storage, are not shared between the Magic Utilities applications.

Load at startup

If checked the application is automatically loaded when the user logs in.

Start minimized

If checked the application window is not shown when launched. To show the window, click on the icon in the system tray. Works well together with Load at startup.

Show splash screen

If checked a splash screen is shown on application start. We added this option as on some computers the startup time can take a few seconds.

Check regularly for updates

If checked an automatic Direct update check is performed on application start. If a new version is available the release notes are shown.

Note: This may not work in company networks with proxy servers. In this case, do a manual update check with Help > Web update check... .

  • An update check can also be performed any time via the Help menu.
  • If this option is enabled, an update check is also performed every two days while the application is running.
